Since you want to put the photos on a website, I recommend using Google Photos instead. This assumes it is okay for the photos to be displayed together, rather than being separate files intended for download.
Go to photos.google.com, go to the settings, and sync your Google Drive photos with Google Photos. Note that this will put all your Google Drive images inside your Google Photos library, including scans and images intended for documents. Google Photos is geared towards photographs, so you can easily archive these work-related images when the Photos Assistant prompts you to. The sync process takes long when you have a lot of images in Google Drive.
Next, make sure that the name of the folder that your photos are in (in Google Drive) is relatively unique. Then search the name of the folder in Google Photos, open it, select all the photos (use the shift key), and create a new album out of those photos from the + icon on the top right (once the photos are selected). Then, go to the album and share it with a link (and do not let others add photos with the link).
Use that link on your website. The album will not be on your website (which saves storage space on your website), but it will be easy for people to view the photos/images in the album site. Photos can still be viewed individually by clicking on them, then moving to the next photo to the right or left.
